Three Wheels United

Big Idea: 

Three Wheels United finances income-generating light electric vehicles, like rickshaws, to reduce air pollution in Indian cities. Turns out the drivers earn more driving these clean electric vehicles. TWU’s loan and asset management software de-risks lending to poorer drivers and can be replicated across India as people make the transition from gas to electric vehicles.

Cedrick has been working in India on the smart use of technology for over 10 years and holds a masters in systems and information management. He began his career as a business analyst at Tata Consultancy Services doing market research on fast moving consumer goods in France.
